AEW Commentator Jim Ross did a deep dive with Conrad Thompson about Judgment Day 2002 on the latest episode of the Grilling JR Podcast. While discussing the main event, a match between Hulk Hogan and the Undertaker for the WWE Undisputed Championship, Ross explained why “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, the white-hot superstar whose relationship with the company had almost completely deteriorated by May of 2002, wasn’t in that main event against Hogan, but was instead relegated to a handicap match lower on the card.
Steve Austin vs. Hulk Hogan has gone down as one of the greatest "What If?" matches in WWE history. The pair only ever wrestled once when they were both in the WWE in the early 2000s via a tag team match involving The Rock, Kevin Nash and Scott Hall on the Monday Night Raw before WrestleMania X8. Austin would go on to wrestle Scott Hall at that event, while Rock took on Hogan in a clash of icons. Both sides have talked about why the match never came to fruition and Jim Ross provided his perspective on the situation during the latest Grilling JR podcast. He explained that Austin was cautious about working with Hogan after seeing how "The Hulkster" worked with The Undertaker at Judgement Day in May 2002.

Few WWE Superstars can say they shared the ring with “Stone Cold” Steve Austin at WrestleMania, but Theory is on that list. The reigning WWE United States Champion is only 24 years old, but he competed in a high-profile match at “The Showcase of the Immortals” this year when he faced Pat McAfee. Theory is Mr. McMahon’s protégé, and the WWE Chairman got into the ring and challenged the former NFL star to an impromptu bout. After “The Boss” won (thanks to a pre-match attack by Theory), the duo’s celebration was interrupted by McMahon’s legendary rival, “Stone Cold.” Austin then dropped the boss and Theory with Stunners before he gave one to McAfee, too.
During a recent episode of his podcast, “Grilling JR,” Jim Ross discussed the 2002 Judgment Day PPV match between Hulk Hogan and The Undertaker. “The match was not an artistic success. But it wasn’t because those guys didn’t work their asses off. You’ve got a guy that’s got a bad back and he’s not a spring chicken … Taker tried to do all he could to make the match a success, but it just didn’t get the job done. And that’s sad to say when you’re talking about two legit legends like Taker and Hulk.”

During an appearance on the Under the Ring podcast, Thunder Rosa commented on her feud with Britt Baker in AEW:. “Every match that we had, it escalated to the next level. At first we had our match that was a regular match at Beach Break. Then, we had the tag matches and the blow off [Lights Outs]. The rivalry that we had, it’s real. Now that I took the title from her, it’s not something that is going to end. It’s like The Rock and Stone Cold (Steve Austin), something similar, or Trish (Stratus) and Lita. Something of that sort. Something that is never going to end. Our matches were definitely more physical in terms of female wrestling. We pushed a lot of boundaries that I don’t think people were used to seeing women in the mainstream media, doing something of that sort, especially on the last one. I probably watched it 10 times and I cannot tell you the amount of pain that everyone that was part of that match went through. From the wrestlers to the referees. It was very intense and we definitely…we had an opportunity to elevate women’s wrestling to another level with it.”
